    Default Asking for your stuff back from EX friends

    So I had this "friend"/Aquaintance whom my kids are friends with her kids, anyway, Shes pregnant & I lent her my baby capsule because I'm nice like that. ( I have a new one here for this baby so i personally dont need it)
    We used to be really good friends, then her boyfriend moved down and I became not good enough for her, lately shes been ignorning me more and more and is just plain rude when I see her she acts completley stuck up and ignores my best friend when shes less than a metre away, anyway I want my capsule back, why should I let her use it, My best friend could use that for her baby due in sept.
    I feel like im being silly & acting like a 16yr old though!!
    WDYT???

    Personally I'd cut my losses and probably move on from the friendship.

    There is no reason you can't politely ask for your car seat to be returned. You don't need to offer a reason but you can say you need it back, implying you want to use it. Then I would move on from the friendship.

    I'd just ask her for it, she doesn't need to know that you won't be actually using it. You can still be polite about it etc, just ask her nicely that way you aren't giving her a reason to get upset about it.

    I'd say your going to have to cut your losses and move on. If she's ignoring you - fair chance you won't get the capsule back.

    Rather than asking for the capsule back out of spite, I'd be more inclined to first ask her why she is treating you the way she is. If she has no reasonable answer - and if she is being as rude as you say then I suspect she won't - then ask for the capsule back. If she won't give it to you then, cut your losses and move on.
